Haringey Borough agree deal with Buckingham Group
5:20pm Monday 21st May 2012 in Sport
Haringey Borough’s ground is set to undergo some much-needed improvements as a result of a new sponsorship deal.
The South Midlands club has linked up with Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, whose head office is in Stowe, to the west of Milton Keynes.
With a company history dating back to the formation of Buckingham Plant Hire in 1955, the Buckingham Group has been one of the fastest growing civil, rail and construction contractors in England over the past 15 years. The company is now an established main contractor, undertaking significant multi-disciplinary construction projects in a range of sectors.
Buckingham have a history of working on football stadiums, including the construction of the Amex Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion. While working on the re-development of the site opposite Coles Park, they kindly approached Borough and have offered their assistance with much-needed groundworks and drainage works.
Club chairman Aki Achillea said:" It's a fantastic gesture by Buckingham, who are committing men, machinery and materials to help the club improve the facilities which have been dilapidated for some time. Such improvements will go some way towards helping Haringey Borough Football Club achieve the requisite ground grading needed to move the club forward.
“With the men's team having their highest finish in the league, the women having been promoted back to the Premier Division and the ground improvements, matters are certainly moving in the right direction, enabling us to continue to strive towards giving the local community a club to be proud of."
Buckingham's site foreman Stephen Bucknall said:" We are delighted to be able to offer our services. The opportunity arose as a result of our close proximity to the club and we felt that if we could make a difference to the club we would be more than willing to assist.
“We are keen as a company to help where we can and are delighted that our services have been so gratefully received by a group of hard working individuals at the club. We are well aware of the cost of such works to clubs in the position of Haringey Borough and we hope that our intervention and assistance will go some way to helping the club achieve its aims and ambitions.”
